At one point, Job actually lost everything - his livestock, his home, his children, and his health. Even his friends and his wife were not who they claimed to be; they were supposed to offer comfort, but instead offered their opinions as to why Job had to suffer the way he did. Even after this, Job even prayed for them. My favorite part of this story is that even in the midst of all of this, Job says in Job 13:15, "Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him." Of course, he had questions just like we do, but Job never denies his integrity or his honor in order to get to the answer of "why". He maintains His trust in God and never takes on the mindset of his friends and wife. He made up His mind to honor God even though He didn't fully understand why those things had happened to Him. The Lord came to Job in a storm and asked, "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand" (Job 38:4). God exerts Himself above Job, spiritually, as the Creator of all things - after which Job shuts His own mouth.
God put us here for Him - to honor Him, to trust Him, and to praise Him...even when the enemy makes it look like we are defeated. It reminds me that God knows all things concerning us - great and small. We should always endeavor to honor God with our actions and our attitudes even when we can't see the victory. Resolve to give God everything you have in spite of what it looks like.
Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious
